Update #1 - To the Minack!
We've been running around Cornwall, Sharon's delicious soup in hand, rehearsing for our run of Dracula: The Kisses... at the gorgeous Minack Theatre.
Our Kickstarter campaign is only 2 weeks old, and we've already raised more than £500!! We're so chuffed and have been thanking our backers on Facebook as they come. Our cast and crew get so excited when a new donation comes in, because we know that takes us one step closer to spreading the gothic, feminist scares all the way up to the Midlands!
We recently had a photo shoot thanks to talented (and immensely fun) photographer Lee Searle. Here are some great photos:
We've been giving away free tickets for our Minack shows on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. If you missed it, make sure to like and follow us to find out when we have our next contest for the mac Birmingham! On Twitter, check in with the hashtag #draculathekisses to see all the latest news from our Dracula team.
Now, a little story straight from the rehearsal room:
Whilst watching a scene between Becca Mordan (Mina Harker) and Mary Woodvine (Jonathan Harker) in our Methodist Church rehearsal space, Shazz Andrew (Dr Van Helsing) said to Bec Applebee (Renfield), ‘This is what I call a rehearsal; we are watching two women rutting on an inverted coffin lid in a real chapel’!
We have more stories and cast blog posts on our wonderful Tumblr page!
Again, thank you thank you thank you to all the generous backers. And if you haven't donated yet but want to - do it now! We've still got a ways to go before reaching the big goal and every little bit counts. xx
